A NORTHERN suburbs institution is reopening its restaurant under a new chef.

Paul Conti Wines announced Monday its 40-year-old restaurant was “back in business” after closing in January with the promise to reopen later “to reflect a subtle shift in its food offering”.

“With vintage season now drawing to a close, we are pleased to announce the appointment of chef John Mountain,” the Conti family announced Monday night.

“He will be in charge of the kitchen and taking full responsibility of operations at Conti’s Restaurant (also known as Conti House – Woodvale).”

The restaurant’s team will include sous chef Matt Smith and manager  Stephen Bradshaw.

“John describes the new menu as modern European brasserie,” the family said.

“The soon-to-be-released menu will be driven by the seasons and changed regularly to show-case a broad range of wholesome dishes and produce including house-made pastas (and breads), which – given our Sicilian heritage – we are particularly excited about.”

The restaurant on Wanneroo Road will be open from this Saturday, and be open for:

Thursday – dinner

Friday – lunch and dinner

Saturday – breakfast, lunch and dinner

Sunday – breakfast/brunch and lunch

Note: Because of a preceding event, breakfast will not be available Saturday, April 13.
